With a leading 12 nominations, it’s no surprise that Drake was among the big winners at last night’s (June 30) 2013 BET Awards.
Drizzy, who opted to skip the show to finish working on his hotly-anticipated new album, Nothing Was The Same, took home three awards: Video of the Year for “Started From The Bottom,” the Viewers’ Choice Awards for “Started From The Bottom,” and Best Collaboration for this part in A$AP Rocky‘s “F*ckin’ Problems,” also featuring 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar.
Speaking of Lamar, the Compton-bred rap newcomer tied Drizzy with three trophies won. He took home his awards for Best New Artist, Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Best Collaboration.
